Who is Abe? Edit
Abe is the mainstay protagonist of the Oddworld Quintology, a lovably unassuming member of the Mudokon race. Placed in bondage from birth to slave in a meat packing plant, Abe suffers a grueling and mundane existence until one night he discovers that he and his entire race are planned to be slaughtered for food to boost profit. From here Abe is thrust into the role of savior, as what begins as a simple escape leads into an epic series of adventures spanning all of Oddworld.
Unlike most characters, Abe is notable in that he is seemingly as close to helpless as one can be. He is weak, frail, cannot harm his foes directly and can be killed quite easily. Because of this, Abe utilizes an ingenious blend of stealth and platforming to overcome his foes, who he can also possess. And when he transforms into the omnipotent Shrykull, watch out...
Abe's been out of action for a while, but with at least three more games remaining in the Oddworld Quintology (not including spinoffs), it's a sure bet that we'll see him whenever those games come out in the future.
"I just had to escape. I just had to be free. And I didn't even know that I had a destiny." -Abe

Contest History Edit
Win-Loss Record: 0-1
Summer 2002 Contest - South Division - 8 Seed
- Southern Round 1 --- Lost to (9) Kyo Kusanagi, 22760 [42.21%] - 31160 [57.79%]
- Extrapolated Strength --- 51st Place [12.74%]
In most closely-seeded matches involving two characters that hardly anyone is familiar with, you'll usually see the higher seed win.
Abe being an ugly bastard, however, caused Kyo and his hot (Literally!) sexiness to advance. Abe has yet to make the contest field since, and one must wonder if anyone really cares. Abe is one of MANY characters whose only contest appearance was Summer 2002, followed by no one really caring about their inability to return to the field.
